Research Focus:

My research investigates how large mammals and birds interact and behave around water resources in north-eastern Botswana. The region is home to Africa's largest elephant population, and there is little information on how this population impacts other large animals (particularly those of high conservation priority) when it comes to utilising water resources. The study aims to address the key variables that influence waterpoint selection, as well as how different wildlife management and ecotourism schemes influence wildlife behaviour.
